DRAFT FOR COMMENT ONLY NOT A SOLICITATION FOR PROPOSALS ENERGY Technologies to Enable a Smart Grid

By 

Abstract

Technology (NIST) was established for the purpose of assisting United States businesses and institutions of higher education or other organizations, such as national laboratories and nonprofit research institutions, to support, promote, and accelerate innovation in the United States through high-risk, high-reward research in areas of critical national need. TIP seeks to support accelerating high-risk, transformative research targeted to address key societal challenges. Funding selections will be merit-based and may be provided to industry (small and medium-sized businesses), universities, and consortia. The primary mechanism for this support is cost-shared cooperative agreements awarded on the basis of merit competitions. AN AREA OF CRITICAL NATIONAL NEED The proposed topic “Technologies to Enable a Smart Grid ” is within the critical national need area of Energy. This includes the technologies that will be required to enable a reliable Smart Grid approach to electric power distribution, demand, and response control, grid connectivity, and the integration of renewable energy sources into the grid. TIP specifically aims to fund research in energy storage systems and the integration of stored energy into the grid system, advanced sensors and their energy sources to be deployed along the grid, and communication and control technologies (high voltage power electronics). The proposed topic area, “Technologies to Enable a Smart Grid ” was selected from a larger field of challenges where transformative research could be expected to have a large societal impact. Input regarding potential challenges was obtained from government agencies (such as the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation), industry (electric utilities), companies, universities, industry organization
